IvePhones and IveMacs No More

Steve Jobs. Bill Gates. Sergey Brin. Jony Ive? Never the lead act at Apple, the tech giant’s background orchestrator is behind some of the company’s biggest hits. In a shock to investors, he’s decided to bow out. What will Apple do without him?

Sir Jony has been Chief Design Officer for 20 years, racking up twice as many patents as Thomas Edison. Apple investors have him to thank for much of the brand’s dominance today, with his  Steve Jobs alliance spawning multiple billionaire dollar inventions. Namely, the iPhone, iPod, iMac, and iPad. He even invented the wooden tables in Apple stores!

The man has been heralded as a “singular figure in the design world” by CEO Steve Cook. When the Brit joined Apple in 1990, Apple’s stock price was so low that in comparison with today’s, it’s barely visible to the naked eye.

Sure, the creative hole left behind by Ive won’t be patched up overnight. But think Apple hadn’t prepared? Think again. Neither side is ready to say goodbye, and a handshake between both parties assures they will continue working together in the future. That may have just saved Apple’s stock, as investors now look forward to reaping the benefits of the Ive age a little longer. He’ll partner up with Apple from his own new design firm, LoveFrom. Who knows? Maybe we’ll be telling you all about its stock market debut someday. 

As for Apple, the first company to be valued at $1,000,000,000,000… the future is laden with questions. It’s been a while since the consumer products giant set the world on fire with a new design, and many investors expect more than merely financial security. News, games, accessories, autonomous vehicles, health-related tech, and even artificial intelligence are all areas that Apple is surveying for that extra something. Minus Sir Jony, that will be an alien era…
